To the Alumni
Hearty thanks to all those
generous contributors to the
Alumni Fund listed on pages 15-
18, also to those who helped
compile the interesting alumni
notes beginning on page 18.
And please don't overlook Mr.
Wilkie's article on page 8, Bob
Wesselhoeft's letter on page 7,
or Koy Nash's account of his
Russian trip on page 5.
The policy of inviting wives
as well as alumni to attend
alumni reunions, so popular last
year, was continued this year
and met with very satisfactory
As usual, the season opened
with the Portland Dinner, held
again in the Mayfair Room of
the Lafayette Hotel, on Wed-
nesday, November 30. Forty-
four alumni and wives were on
hand to greet a large delegation
of faculty and to hear Mr. Wil-
kie and Mr. Elliott Gordon of
the Board of Trustees and to
witness Mr. Sager's illustrated
lecture on the material growth
of the Academy from the Little
Red Schoolhouse to the Frost
Building, the new hockey rink,
and the modern plant we now
One hundred and twenty-four
alumni and wives and fully half
the Governor Dummer faculty
gathered at the Harvard Club
for the annual Boston Dinner
on December 7. Mr. Sager re-
peated his illustrated lecture;
Pete Sutton came up from New
York to restore last year's so-
popular quartet; and Mr. Wilkie
outlined plans for the bicenten-
nial celebration in 1962.
In mid-January Mr. and Mrs.
Wilkie and Messrs. Sager,
Stone, and Navins took off for
the annual Western New York
trip. On Thursday, January 19,
they met with an enthusiastic
group of alumni and parents
whom Gerry Dietz '35 had as-
sembled at the University Club
in Syracuse. Tom Collins '41 and
Bob Lyle '40 sponsored a simi-
lar meeting at the Buffalo
Tennis and Squash Club on the
following evening. At both meet-
ings Mr. Wilkie spoke and Mr.
Sager showed his colored slides.
On April 24 Mr. and Mrs.
Wilkie departed for a western
tour which included stops at
Dallas, Texas ; and Chicago, Illi-
nois. In Dallas at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank E. Austin,
Jr. they had a most enjoyable
meeting with 28 alumni and
friends. In Chicago, where they
were joined by Mr. Sager, Mr.
and Mrs. Arlindo S. Cate had
gathered 24 parents, alumni,
and wives at the University
Club for a most enthusiastic re-
The North Shore Dinner
again concluded the season. A
social hour at the Ould New-
bury Golf Club preceded the
dinner in the school dining room
where a capacity crowd heard
Mr. Wilkie, Mr. Murphy, and
Web Dann '48 talk about Gov-
ernor Dummer's present status
and its future plans.
Terpsichore Comes Twice
A winter dance as well as a
spring dance has now become a
fixture of the Governor Dum-
mer schedule. This year the
winter dance was held on Janu-
ary 28. Unlike the spring dance,
it was strictly a one-day affair.
Chairman Dave Clarke and
his committee did an excellent
job. The girls were invited for
three o'clock. Many of them wit-
nessed some of the afternoon
athletic events, and all enjoyed
dinner in the school dining room
and dancing to Ken Reeves' or-
The big social event of the
year, however, is still the spring
dance. It was held this year on
May 8 with Albie Booth head-
ing a committee which included
Tony Baumann, Pete Boynton,
Hap Bliss, Peter Eaton, Tony
Garland, Ed Kaiser, Steve Saw-
yer, and Charlie Vaughan.
As usual the girls arrived on
Saturday afternoon, watched
the afternoon games, dined and
danced in the Phillips Building,
and were overnight guests of
As usual, they attended the
Sunday morning chapel service ;
but this year there was an add-
ed feature. The girls' departure
was delayed until 2 :00 so that
they and their escorts could en-
joy a mid-day cookout on the
campus, an innovation which
was particularly acceptable to
team members who in other
years have had so little time
with their dates on Saturday
Have you noticed? Governor
Dummer has finally succumbed
and installed a postage meter.
Its significance lies not in any
saving of postage but rather in
a phenomenal increase in the
volume of mail emanating from
the school, — a volume which
makes the old-fashioned postage
and college placement problems
have added greatly to the neces-
sary correspondence in recent
years. The bicentennial celebra-
tion and Third Century Fund

Glee Club Returns To Lang
The Glee Club sang a six-con-
cert schedule this year and will
end with a seventh at Com-
mencement-time. The Symphony
Hall concert of the New England
Private School Music Festival
was again omitted. New on the
schedule was a joint concert
with the Newburyport Choral
Society on April 23 sponsored
by St. Paul's Episcopal Church
of Newburyport as part of the
celebration of its 250th anni-
The latter concert became
nearly a Governor Dummer

of the concert were choruses
from La Belle Helene and Ode
to the Virginian Voyage sung
by the two groups. The Glee
Club also contributed Allegri's
Miserere, God of Our Fathers,
and choruses from The Sound
The Walnut Hill and Abbot
concerts were away. The first
home concert was scheduled for
the Alumni Gym on February
11 with Winsor School as the
guest singers. At the last mo-
ment conflict with athletic re-
quirements made it advisable to
hold the concert in the Lang
Gymnasium instead. The more
intimate atmosphere of the
smaller hall, its superior acous-
tic properties, and its proximity
to the Phillips Building made
the change so pleasing that it
was forthwith decided to hold
all future concerts in Lang.
Accordingly, the Beaver
Country Day concert was held
there on March 3 with equal
success. The Dana Hall concert
on April 14, however, was
moved to the Cobb Room be-
cause neither school wished to
invite outside guests.
A pre-concert dinner and a
post-concert dance were sched-
uled for each of the joint

with his wife and four of their
five children. Not brought along
on the trip were their two dogs,
one hamster, four turtles, one
bird, and three fish ! Bill is with

Thomas G. Cleveland (1949-
1951) is back in Alaska. From
one of his letters, printed in
The Church Militant, we learn
that he is now at St. Barthol-

From Our Moscow
On Dec. 17, 1960, The Cornell
University Glee Club left the
country for an extended singing
tour of the Soviet Union and
London, England. Included in
the group of 79 men was Roy
C. Nash, G.D.A. '59. Following
is an account of some of his ob-
servations on the trip written
specifically for The Archon.
"After a long cross- Atlantic
flight, a day's rest in Amster-
dam, and a very pleasant two-
day stopover at Copenhagen, we
finally landed in Russia. Since
the airport was a good distance
from Moscow, we had an excel-
lent opportunity to view the
countryside on our way to the
hotel. Most of the land was un-
developed, and as far as one
could see, there were nothing
but massive pines. Here and
there a group of small wooden
shacks would pop up, most of
them resembling the shanty
towns that used to be so preva-
lent near the railroads in our
own country. Another obvious
difference was the dearth of
automobiles, billboards, and gas-
oline stations. As a matter of
fact we never did see a gas sta-
tion and wondered just where
the buses, trucks and few cars
got their fuel. We were in for
a shock when we reached our
'hotel'. This building was a
brick structure only five years
old, but looking very much old-
er. A brief listing of its assets
will suffice to say how we en-
joyed our stay at the hotel
Tourist. There were no private
baths, no running hot water, no
coat hangers, no toilet paper,
one shower in the whole build-
ing, and one small, unclean din-
ing room where we had to eat
in shifts. Our breakfast consist-
ed of half-cooked eggs or mushy
rice pudding, tea, sugar cubes
which refused to dissolve, borsch
which was somehow made to
divide into three layers — one
of the soup, the second of a
creamy-type liquid, and the
third which most of us swore
was pure grease. We just ate
enough to subsist, and it amazed
our guides to see us rush to the
ice cream stand whenever we
happened to spot one.
"At our first concert we saw
how friendly most of the Rus-
sian students are and how in-
terested they are in the U. S. A.
In Russia when a performance
is appreciated the audience will
clap rhythmically as is done at
our baseball games to spur on
the home team. This signifies
that they enjoyed the particular
song very much and wish us to
sing it over again. It was very
satisfying to hear that, and ev-
erywhere we went both in Mos-
cow and in Leningrad we were
well received. At receptions af-
terward questions about our-
selves, our university, our
homes, our families, our fathers'
jobs, unemployment, and segre-
gation were most frequently
asked. I might add that a great
number of the students speak
English and it is as popular over
there as French or Spanish is in
"In spite of what one hears
to the contrary, most of the
people love their country very
much and are proud of what
Communism has done for it.
Education is free for all who
want it from the first grade on.
Conditions still are poor in hous-
ing and appliances, but are a
lot better than when the Czar-
ists were in power. The people
realize that they do not have all
the comforts we do, although
some would not believe that
most of us have automobiles and
sometimes a summer home.
They are content to be without
these while the country builds
itself up in the 'more important
"Russia is now progressing at
an amazing rate : there is con-
struction going on everywhere,
the educational process is being
speeded up, and the degree of
patriotism is fantastic. Women
don't look for a husband, they
look for a job to help the state.
Apparent everywhere in dis-
plays, exhibitions, and maga-
zines are new examples of Rus-
sian progress. What they live
for is to catch up to the United
States. They still have a long
way to go to do so, but are con-
tent to keep on trying till they
reach their goal.
"Our trip ended after flying
to London and singing in West-
minster Abbey and for The Roy-
al Society of Musicians. It had
been tiring, but there was no
one who could say that he had
not learned something valuable
along the way."
For the first time in many
years, Governor Dummer pub-
lished a school catalog in the
summer of 1960. Its appearance
inspired several friends and
neighbors to donate copies of
ancient catalogs to add to our
archives. Some of them are most
enlightening about the relatively
uncomplicated boarding school
life of one hundred years ago.
Almost any of you could have
gained ready admission during
the Civil War years. All you
had to do was to "possess a good
moral character; to be at least
ten years of age; to be able to
read fluently, and spell the more
common English words;" and
to have a knowledge of "the
fundamental principles of Arith-
metic, Geography and English
But could you have stayed in?
The catalog emphasizes by ital-
ics that the tuition charge of
$7.00 per term was "payable
each term in advance" and that
the weekly charge of $4.00 for
board and room was "exclusive
of wood and lights." Further-
more, "the use of fire-arms and
intoxicating liquors, games of
chance and profane swearing,
are strictly forbidden," and
"special attention is given to the
deportment and habits of the
pupils, and the inculcation of
correct moral principles is re-
garded as an object of primary
importance. The pupils are re-
quired to maintain the respect-
ful and courteous bearing of
gentlemen in their intercourse
with each other and their teach-
er. The Bible is made a book of
daily study, and is regarded as
the onlv infallible guide to
Pretty tough, you think? Not
at all, for "the retirement of the
place, and its freedom from
stores, taverns and other places
of resort, are great aids in the
moral cultivation of the pupils."
And when you left would you
have taken a diploma with you?
Not unless you had a thorough
knowledge of Caesar, Cicero,
and Sallust, of the Anabasis and
Homer (in the original Latin
and Greek naturally), — nor
unless you were proficient in

Always Something New
The school maintenance staff
is currently busily converting
the south half of the basement
of the big barn beside the road
to Whipple Field into a com-
modious locker room.
With the Frost Hockey Rink
in operation, it soon became ob-
vious that lockers, showers, and
dressing room space in that area
are needed to supplement those
in the Alumni Gymnasium. At
one time it was thought they
could be provided in the equip-
ment house at the rink ; but that
plan was abandoned, partially
because of excessive cost and
partially because locker rooms
so located would not be conven-
ient for the use of the soccer
teams in the fall or for the J.V.
baseball or lacrosse teams who
might also use them in the
By utilizing the space in the
big barn it will be possible to
provide a 25-locker home team
room, a spacious visiting team
room, a large shower room and
an entry hall large enough to ac-
commodate skate benches where
casual skaters can put on and
remove their skates in comfort.
The visiting team room is pro-
vided with separate facilities
which will serve as a powder
room for ladies when the expect-
ed skating club is using the rink.
Inclement weather and deep
frost somewhat delayed the
start of this project, but it is
expected that it can be complet-
ed by the beginning of the soccer

additional food for thought.

The Student Viewpoint
( An invited contribution by
Peter Boynton '61 )
Governor Dummer is now in
the second year of a new admin-
istration — a "new frontier"
after a long and very capable
administration, which in its
earlier days was in itself a "new
frontier." Very much like the
first few weeks of our new na-
tional administration, the one
here at Governor Dummer was
accepted in its first few months
with very little criticism. (It
should be noted right now that
Governor Dummer students, like
those of any school, can be most
critical observers. ) However,
towards the end of the first year
and the beginning of this, the
second one, we students have
noted the policies and actions of
our new Headmaster in a more
critical light. "Critical" in this
case does not necessarily have
a bad connotation, but rather it
implies that we have examined
more closely what goes on so as
to be able to decide how it will
relate to us and to the institu-
tion. We have not accepted un-

questioning Mr. Wilkie's plans
for the future ; we have scrutin-
ized these plans to see for our-
selves what they will imply for
future classes. Take, for in-
stance, the question of a chapel
on campus. At the outset the
idea of a chapel was met by
many with the aversion typical
of any boy who has served his
time in Sunday school and now
feels he can go to church when
and if he pleases. But as the
school has become more accus-
tomed to the idea, several ad-
vantages have been found, many
of which are practical, such as
the elimination of a long bus
ride. But there are others which
tend away from the practical,
such as the spiritual ties which
can be formed by attending
church in a body. There is little
doubt that, if we students were
to decide the matter, a chapel
would soon be a feature of our
Intellectual stimulation is an-
other problem we have been con-
cerned with. By this I mean not
the idea of "booking" but the
contacting of the minds of fel-
low students and older men to
discuss the knowledge we have
acquired. There is little doubt
but that the next few years will
see the growth of this ger-
minating seed, which will flower
into clubs, discussion groups,
and a clamor for more contact
with men outside the school so
as to broaden a somewhat lim-
ited outlook. The administration
has begun actively to stimulate
the growth of this intellectual-
ity; and the guest speakers,
tours, and debates have found
eager audiences and partici-
This is all a pretty rosy pic-
ture, but taken as a whole, such
is the outlook. It is the minority
who stand off and gripe about
"the way things are done around
here," instead of taking the
initiative to do something to
change the situation. Of course,
often these people are heard be-
cause they shout the loudest —
that doesn't mean they repre-
sent the most. One of the most
promising signs as to the situa*
tion here at school is that many
people aren't listening to this
minority as attentively as they

that the fact that this situation

best indications that this school
is accomplishing its task?

Evaluation Committee Visit
By Valleau Jfilkie. Jr.
The New England Associa-
tion of Colleges and Secondary
Schools adopted a policy some
years ago, calling for an evalu-
ation of all member colleges and
schools within a ten-year period.
Each member institution was
to be visited by a committee
appointed by the Association
and, on the basis of the report
filed by the committee, individ-
ual colleges and schools would
be approved for continued mem-
bership in good standing, or
disapproved if they did not meet
the standards set forth. Last
fall it became our turn to re-
ceive such an evaluation com-
mittee at Governor Dummer.
Although the avowed purpose
of this program is to provide
the Association with informa-
tion about its members, of equal
importance is the opportunity
for a school such as ours to re-
ceive the benefit of a relative-
ly objective opinion of our pro-
gram from members of other
faculties. Particularly at this
time, when Governor Dummer
has been carrying on a study
of its own program in prepara-
tion for its third century of
service, the visit of an evalua-
tion committee was welcomed
as one more means of weigh-
ing the merits and demerits,
the strengths and weaknesses,
of the Academy.
The committee which arrived
on campus on Sunday, October
9, consisted of Mr. Paul Wright,
senior master at Groton, chair-
man; Mr. William R. Jones,
head of the Modern Language
Department at Exeter; and Mr.
Albert Thorndike, head of the
Science Department at Milton.
During the summer Mr. Wright
and I had tentatively assigned
each member to investigate cer-
tain departments and activities
and had worked out a back-
breaking schedule which kept
the committee on the run from
8:00 a. m. until 11:00 p. m. for
the two and a half days they
were on campus. They visited
many classes, talked with de-
partment heads, studied the op-
erations of the Director of Ad-
missions, Director of Studies,
and Business Manager. They
toured the entire plant and also
talked with many groups of
masters and students. Three
thoroughly weary gentlemen
wended their way home late
Tuesday in possession of an im-
mense store of varied facts and
impressions of the school which
would shortly become organized
into a final report.
I am pleased to say that, in
general, the committee's report
was a favorable one, but there
were certain areas of our oper-
ation about which critical com-
ment was quite properly made.
Among these areas were two of
particular importance to the fu-
ture development of the Acade-
my. In the first place, it was
noted that our faculty, as com-
pared to those of similar schools,
tends to be overworked and un-
derpaid, despite the efforts that
have been made over the years
to rectify this situation. The
fact that our men have too many
varied duties to perform pre-

sents a problem because the in-
dividual teacher often finds too
little time to devote to the sort
of academic preparation which
is essential for excellent teach-
ing. This is not to say that the
instruction offered is inadequate,
but rather that it would become
yet more exciting and meaning-
ful if our faculty had a bit more
time for academic endeavors.
The answer to this problem lies
partly in placing increased re-
sponsibility upon our older stu-
dents who can and should shoul-
der some of the burdens now
carried by the faculty, and part-
ly in some enlargement of the
faculty. Both the increase in
numbers of faculty members
and the continued effort to im-
prove the salary scale depend
to a considerable degree upon
our financial strength during
the coming years.
A second factor upon which
the committee dwelt at some
length was the limited oppor-
tunities which we offer in the
area of extracurricular activi-
ties. Although we can be proud
of our Glee Club, our Debating
Club, and our publications, there
is great need for an instrumen-
tal-music program, including a
school orchestra; an art pro-
gram of greater magnitude and
quality than our current make-
shift arrangements; and a dra-
The current curriculum and
the proposed changes and addi-
tions were heartily endorsed by
the committee. They strongly
approved the religious program
now under development. They
were impressed by all our ath-
letic department is accomplish-
ing. And finally they commented
favorably on the caliber of fac-
ulty and student body. In gen-
eral, the report was encourag-
ing, and where it tended to
point up soft spots, these were
problems which we have recog-
nized and sought to provide for
in the Program for Governor
Dummer about which many of
you have already heard.
The visit of the committee
was of great value to us. It put
us on our mettle before the
searching gaze of our visitors ;
it showed to us some problems
that others felt we must face;
and it tended to confirm our de-
cisions and plans for the devel-
opment of the Academy during
the coming years.
Visitors to the Governor Dum-
mer library on Mondays are
sometimes surprised to find in
the reading room a large display
of paper-backed books in drug-
store-style metal stacks mount-
ed on a moveable cart.
The paperbacks, the stacks,
and the cart represent a dream
of Mrs. Thurlow, our indefati-
gable librarian, who feels that
"the library is the logical place
to sell books, as ownership of
books as well as borrowing
books from library shelves are
kindred habits and should be
Mrs. Thurlow is well pleased
with the response to her inno-
vation. She reports that the
boys have already purchased
over $800 worth of books rang-
ing- in price from 35<? to $1.95.
Books are on sale on Mondays
only; on other days the racks
are rolled back to the librarian's
workroom for replenishment.
Some titles are included at
faculty suggestion to meet out-
side reading requirements ; most
titles reflect student interests.
Again we quote Mrs. Thurlow:
''Alumni, visit us and see for
yourselves the amazing collec-
tion of intriguing books, —
everything from science fiction
to The Universe and Doctor Ein-
stein, — from required outside
reading to the best of beat (On

and Fall of Practically Every-
body to The Devil's Advocate, —
from Ballantine war books to

The Chapel Committee an-
nounced a special collection for
the purpose at the first chapel
service in the spring term and
subsequently voted to supple-
ment the $45.00 contributed
then with $55.00 from previous
contributions. A further $25.00
came in from faculty, independ-
ently of the chapel collection,
so that Mr. Wilkie was able to
send a total of $125.00 to the

This year there were two
alumni-varsity games during the
winter, one in hockey on Satur-

basketball on Saturday, January
From the varsity point of
view, the hockey game was noth-
ing less than a debacle. And no
one in the wide, wide world can
be blamed but Coach Athol Mac-
donald Murphy himself. He had
coached them in school; he had
followed their careers in college ;
and yet he bull-headedly went
ahead and invited the following

Before we draw a kindly cur-
tain on that unhappy event, let's
pause only to say that the
weather was fine, many happy
reunions took place on the side-
lines, many alumni have charm-
ing wives, and the varsity did
manage to score one lone goal.
The current students enjoyed
a bit of revenge when the bas-
ketball veterans came back to
face the varsity. The alumni
fielded a team which included
for various lengths of time, de-
pending on their current lung
capacities, waist lines, and ton-
nage, Peter Cadigan '57, John
Canepa '49, Charlie Eddy '59,
Bud Hadley '56, Ernie Lamb '54,
Randy Light '59, Rey Moulton

For the first three periods the
varsity seldom enjoyed a com-
fortable lead; several times the
alumni were hard on their heels ;
once the score was tied; but in
the last few minutes Coach Wil-

In Orchestra Festival
Warren Vaughan and James
Esdaile participated again this
year in the New England Inde-
pendent School Orchestra Festi-
val, held at Dana Hall School in
Wellesley on April 7 and 8.
This is the seventh year of
the Festival, which was found-
ed to provide an opportunity for
instrumentalists "to perform
symphonic literature in a fully
instrumented orchestra." Audi-
tions were held last fall, and the
selected boys and girls came
from eleven schools to rehearse
intensively prior to the concert
on the final evening.
The 70-piece orchestra was
directed by Dr. Nathan Gott-
schalk of the Hartt College of
Music in New Haven and of the
Greenwood Music Camp. The
program included Purcell's
''Trumpet Tune and Voluntary,"
and Allegro from "La Sultane
Suite," Bach's "Brandenburg
Concerto No. 4," Beethoven's
"Piano Concerto No. 3 in C
minor (first movement),
Piston's "Fanfare for the Fight-
ing French," Gluck's Overture
to the Opera "Iphigenia in
Aulis," and Bizet's "L'Arlesi-
enne Suite for Orchestra, No. 2."
Frost Rink Used To Capacity
By E. Webster Dann
In its first year of operation
the Frank J. Frost Memorial
Rink clearly demonstrated its
usefulness to the Governor Dum-
mer family. Guaranteed ice sur-
face was assuredly the rink's
most valuable asset, and this
feature was tested under almost
every weather condition. Addi-
tions during the winter of a
55-foot-long team shelter, a re-
surfacing machine, electric bell,
scrapers, new hockey cages, and
a skate-sharpening machine fur-
ther increased operating effi-
ciency, and helped to provide a
smoother hockey season.
In almost continuous opera-
tion from December 7 through
February 26, the rink was
shared by Governor Dummer
hockey teams and students and
by neighboring groups and
teams. During the week, from
2 :45 p. m. to 5 :30 p. m., the first,
second, and third hockey teams
used the rink for practices. Be-
ing able to practice every day
quickly brought improvement
and increased enthusiasm in the
various teams. The first team
also practiced regularly on Mon-
day evenings, thus providing a

Sunday afternoon was divided
into three time groups: free
skating at 2 : 00 p. m., an alumni-
varsity informal hockey game
at 3:15 p. m., and finally, in-
formal hockey for school mem-
bers below the varsity level.
Each of these three groups be-
came increasingly more popular

Saturday evening was an
additional free skating period
for members of the student
body. This period was extreme-
ly popular, and provided an op-
portunity for non-hockey play-
ers to enjoy two hours of rec-
The rink was also used exten-
sively by groups outside the
immediate school family. On
Tuesday and Friday evenings,
the rink was host to scores of
elementary-grade children from
the Newbury schools. Often
there were as many as 200 chil-
dren skating, practicing, or gen-
erally enjoying themselves. The
many parents watching ap-
peared to be having an equally
good time. Several neighboring
hockey teams, including Haver-
hill, Melrose, Rowley, and Tops-
field rented the rink for one-
hour periods at different times
during the week.
On January 28, the Frost
Rink was the scene of a Junior
Varsity Round Robin Hockey
Tournament involving the eight
teams of the Private School
League. Five hours and eleven
games later found Noble and
Greenough School of Dedham
the recipient of the Morrison
Trophy, with the Governors
placing third. It was an ex-
tremely exciting afternoon for
both the players and the many
parents who were in attendance.
Geoffrey G. Dellenbaugh of
Gardner has been granted a
Merit Scholarship for 1961. He
is one of 850 so honored this
year and won the award in
competition with 15,000 high

schools throughout the nation.
Dellenbaugh's scholarship was
awarded by Shell Oil Company,
one of 140 corporations par-
ticipating in the Merit program.
Edward J. Stone was the last

Hockey Looks Up
The number of candidates for
varsity hockey did not, fortu-
nately for other sports, increase
as sharply as had been antici-
pated ; but those candidates who
did appear profited greatly by
the regular practice which the
Frost Rink afforded. It may
take another year or two for
the Governors to catch up fully
with rivals who have had sev-
eral years on artificial ice; but
Mr. Murphy's skaters can take
considerable satisfaction in their
record in 1961.
The Governors played a total
of thirteen games, won five, lost
seven, and tied one. Starting
rather slowly, they dropped a
one-sided game to St. Mark's
and a close one to Brooks be-
fore they tasted victory in an
8-2 win over the M.I.T. Fresh-
men. A three-game winning
streak in early February clearly
showed the benefit of regular
Goalwise, they scored thirty
times to their opponents' thirty-
five. In spirit and enthusiasm
they were unexcelled.
Wrestlers Do It Again
The wrestlers also got off to
a somewhat disappointing start,
— disappointing maybe to
Coaches Evans and Marr and to
the victory-glutted veterans on
the squad, but to no one else.
The opener was at Andover;
it was nip and tuck all the way
and was decided in Andover's
favor only in the final, unlimited
match. It was the Governors'
first loss in 23 dual meets and
the only loss of the current sea-
son. And the Governors were
in good company, for the Ando-
ver wrestlers also administered
their only defeats to Phillips
Exeter and to Needham High,
longtime standouts in wrestling.
Andover's only defeat, inciden-
tally, was by Milton, whom the
Governors downed later in the
In a season which included
victories over St. Mark's, Noble
and Greenough, Belmont Hill,
Roxbury Latin, Browne and
Nichols, and Tabor, as well as
Milton, the Governor Dummer
athletes compiled some impres-
sive personal records. Captain
Ted Dietz and Bob Taylor were
undefeated. Steve Sawyer, Brud
Durfee, Mark Johnson, and
Dave Graff lost only once.
Those six and Burke Leahey
represented the Governors in the
annual Interscholastics. Steve
Sawyer took a second in his
class ; Captain-Elect Durfee a
third, and Ted Dietz and Bob
Taylor each took fourth in their
classes. In team score Governor
Dummer was sixth out of the
more than fifty schools compet-
Bissell High Scorer
In clear reversal of the cur-
rent emphasis on height in bas-
ketball 5' 9" Fred Bissell led the
Governors in both field goals
and free throws during the past
season. His 75 field goals and 81
free throws contributed greatly
to the Governors 9-6 winning
Fred's average of 15.4 points
per game was closely followed
with Bruce Gilchrist with 10.5.
Dana Steele with 108 rebounds,
and Captain Tom Woodruff with
103 set up many scoring plays.
This overall season record of
nine wins and seven losses and
their league record of four wins
and three losses both give the
Governors considerable satisfac-
tion. Despite Bissell's phenome-
nal record, lack of height was
definitely a handicap against
many of their competitors, and
only fine spirit and great enthu-
siasm allowed Mr. Williams'
charges to compile such a sat-

Highlights of the winter track
season were the B.A.A. games,
the Private School meet at An-
dover, and the final dual meet
In the B.A.A. games the Gov-
ernors' relay team consisting of
Captain Ed Kaiser, Denis Gold-
en, Tom McDonald, and Bill
O'Brien placed second after
Huntington and ahead of Moses
Brown and Deerfield.
In the Private School meet
the Governors took five first
places, 491/0 points, and the
Class B title. Outstanding were
Captain Kaiser's 2:26.8 1,000-
yard run and Tom Wilson's
In the final meet at Tabor
the Governors took a 39-33 de-
cision, helped greatly by Tony
Garland's 5' 7" jump. Weak in
the dashes, the Governors were
particularly strong in the hur-
dles and middle distances. Tom
Wilson lost out in the mile to
Tabor's Fawcett, but he and
Tony Baumann picked up a val-
uable four points by taking sec-
ond and third places.
The relay team went far afield
during the winter weekend to
compete at the Interscholastics
Meet at New York University.
Running against sixty teams
from widely scattered schools,
the Governors broke the school
record for the second time and
took tenth place in the meet.
At the B.A.A. they had run
the mile in 3 :40.5 ; at New York
they did it in 3 :40 flat.

it was fun and taught us all a
youthful swing that serves me

of golf begun with my father
on the old Cambridge Golf Links
in Watertown, now the Oakleigh
Country Club. We had tourna-
ments ; and silver-backed mili-
tary brushes won as a prize are
still in use today. Things were
made to last in those days.
"Just how we found time for
golf I find myself wondering
when I recall the regular sports,
baseball, basketball, football,
hockey and lacrosse, not to men-
tion cross-country runs all over
and around South Byfield.
"That also was the year of
the great disaster when we went
up to play Exeter and held them
to on the four-yard line with
one minute to play. In those days
of course the goal posts were

went back to kick out of danger,
those huge obstacles were too

Greisser Patterson fell on the

shudder at the thought of those

bad as running with the ball the
wrong way of the field as one
still famous full-back did.
"Thank Heaven the goal posts

such calamities. Football rules

Russell Atkinson, the son of the
Mayor of Newburyport, a very
fine and popular boy, had his

any rate on one's wind.
